Photos: Guests raise a Rukus at Monterey rock hop

Up next, Stampede barbecue set for July 17

Rukus, the 50s and 60s rock band, raised the roof at the Monterey Recreation Centre on June 8 with authentic rock and roll from Elvis to the Beatles, with Roy Orbison on the side. After burgers for dinner, guests got down to some energetic jiving, twisting, and doing the “mashed potato” to the groovy beat of Rukus. There was even a conga line.

The next event at the centre is the Stampede barbecue on July 17 with great grub and dancing. Tickets are now available at 1442 Monterey Ave.
